Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Provocator – Satan, Chaos, Blood And Terror (Moribund)

Recently I have found myself enamored by Bestial Black Metal or War Metal if you like. Raw untamed, relentless Black Metal with a heavy Death Metal influence taking inspiration from the beginnings of Extreme Metal with an excessive worship towards the barbaric tones of Hellhammer,.. Read More
Crucifyre - Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

Crucifyre – Post Vulcanic Black (Pulverised Records)

The Stockholm old-schoolers return with this, their third album, following from their last release, “Black Magic Fire” back in 2014. I have “Black Magic Fire” in my own personal collection, and while I remember enjoying it, I wasn’t completely blown away with it. There have.. Read More
Funeral Winds - Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

Funeral Winds – Sinister Creed (Avantgarde)

…I get a feeling that 2018 is going to be a good year for fast, furious and brutal black metal… Now, Funeral Winds may take a bit of time getting a full-length record out, but when they do, they don’t fuck about. The follow-up album.. Read More
Anguish - Magna Est Vis Suignah (High Roller)

Anguish – Magna Est Vis Suignah (High Roller)

Founded in 2007, Sweden’s Anguish have experienced a number of line-up changes and creative dry spells. However, the start of a new decade for the band finds them reaching back to their roots and sounding reinvigorated after 2014’s “Mountain”. Vocalist and bass man, J Dee.. Read More
Tongues - Hreilia (I, Voidhanger Records)

Tongues – Hreilia (I, Voidhanger Records)

Since their first EP offering in 2014, Tongues have kept a low profile. The Danes haven’t been lying idle though. Mixing black, death and doom metal, they have now released their debut full length, “Hreilia”; a dark dreamscape steeped in mysticism and spiritual bleakness. C... Read More
Damnation's Hammer - Unseen Planets, Deadly Spheres (S/R)

Damnation’s Hammer – Unseen Planets, Deadly Spheres (S/R)

Well here’s a nice surprise. First came across Damnation’s Hammer at this year’s Warhorns festival where they played an impressively tight and focused set which went down a storm. I marked them as ones to buy an album by and, lo, here I am with.. Read More
The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus - Split (I, Voidhanger)

The Wakedead Gathering / Ecferus – Split (I, Voidhanger)

A relatively short release, this, being as it is a four track EP coming from those lovers of all things eclectic, I, Voidhanger records. In fairness, both acts are one-man outfits. Featured here is the dark and wilfully obscure death metal of Ohio’s Wakedead Gathering,.. Read More
Vassafor – Malediction (Iron Bonehead)

Vassafor – Malediction (Iron Bonehead)

It’s funny but I’ve been listening to a lot of late eighties, early nineties stuff recently for the usual confluence of synchronicity reasons. I say funny, but it’s just that it put me in the right mindset to approach NZ two piece band Vassafor. Despite.. Read More
Arroganz - Primitiv (FDA Records)

Arroganz – Primitiv (FDA Records)

I haven’t heard any of Germany’s Arroganz before, but this represents full length album number four since their first in 2011, and it’s clear that the trio of K (Bass, Vocals), P (Guitar) and T (Drums) know what they’re doing. (Actually, this represents album number.. Read More
Schafott - The Black Flame (High Roller)

Schafott – The Black Flame (High Roller)

It’s debut album time for this bunch of Teutonic terrors, always a big step even in this day and age. Once the backwards snarling and melodic guitar intro ‘Conflagration’ is out of the way, which suggests some gritty and dark but traditional metal, we get.. Read More
Poison Blood – S/T (Relapse Records)

Poison Blood – S/T (Relapse Records)

Technology is a wonderful thing.  Connecting people around the globe in moments. Gone are the days of “Penbangers” in Metal Forces – waiting for those C90 tapes to arrive from the other side of the world – or up the road. A golden time then.. Read More
Tele s therion - Luzifers Abschied (Minotauro Records)

Tele s therion – Luzifers Abschied (Minotauro Records)

It has been a while since I last heard from the strange and sinister Tele s therion who are not in any way shape or form to be confused with the operatic, symphonic grandeur of their near namesakes. This is a collective of like-minded musicians.. Read More
